A Labor spokesperson said sports can choose to run single-sex sporting competitions, or they can choose to include trans women, under the Sex Discrimination Act.
“It’s up to the sports organisations – whether it’s a grassroots or professional competition.
Sports organisations do a great job of running their competitions and programs across the country. Everyone should have the chance to enjoy the health and social benefits of sport.”
Decoded: sporting organisations can ‘choose’ but they must choose… wisely, or be subjected to a hate campaign designed to destroy their equanimity and their receipts. That Labor isn’t taking this opportunity to neutralise a controversy by agreeing to a no-brainer unity ticket is a tell-tale sign an Albanese government will not protect women and girls in their own sports.
